CMT Introduces New Products in Cobalt, 1-Port VNA Product Series

June 6, 2017

Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) introduces 10 new products at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) held June 4-9 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu.

CMT is adding a new 1-Port VNA to their lineup of products, the R180. The entire line gives the user lab grade performance in a handheld device. This new 1-Port VNA (Cable and Antenna Analyzer) will feature a frequency range from 1 MHz to 18 GHz and is the first 18 GHz 1-port VNA that can connect directly to DUT, improving measurement accuracy by eliminating practical limitation of test cables. R180 can be controlled and powered through a USB-C port or through an external 5 VDC power supply. The unit delivers highly accurate results in a wide variety of measurement formats, including time domain measurement.

CMT is also expanding the Cobalt VNA product series that offers industry-leading dynamic range and sweep speed. New 2- and 4-port models in 9 and 20 GHz range will offer Direct Receiver Access that meets the needs of power amplifier manufacturing testing. Other new 2- and 4-port models in 9 and 20 GHz range will support Frequency Extension to 50 to 75 GHz, 60 to 90 GHz and 75 to 110 GHz, for 5G IoT applications, automotive radar testing and many others.

Copper Mountain Technologies' USB VNAs are next generation analyzers that include the RF measurement module and a processing module, which is a software application that runs on a Windows PC, laptop or tablet connected to the measurement hardware via USB interface. This allows for improved processing power, better display capabilities and more reliable performance. Copper Mountain Technologies VNAs also offer a wide range of standard features that include time-domain with gating, fixture simulation (embedding and de-embedding) and frequency offset mode.
